Oleaceae (Jamine family)
Malabar Jamine is a large climber with white flowers and is very fragrant. The white, clustered, star-shaped flowers appear nearly year-round and have a pleasant fragrance. The flowers start out as purplish buds and retain some pinkish-purple on the calyx.
Jasminum Malabaricum prefers full sun to partial shade. The plant doesn t like to be dried out for any length of time, and also does not like sitting in water but prefers moist soil .It requires frequent pruning to keep shape.
Specimen climber or Shrub. Also does well in containers
Jasmine plants like bright sunlight, so if the plant is indoors, make sure that it is getting sunlight for up to four hours a day. Having the plant in front of a southern facing window will do wonders for its growth. During the winter months, the plant will not need quite as much direct sunlight.
Jasmine plants need a lot of water, especially when they are in bloom. It is best to always keep the soil slightly moist. The soil mixture should remain moist throughout the year, but not soggy. Less water is needed during the resting period following bloom decline. You can repot the Jasmine if spring if needed. Fertilise the plant with a liquid fertiliser once in 2-3 weeks during bloom period.
